LOL. That cooler is just temporary. I've already ordered an 1156 mounting bracket for my orochi. I just find it strange that intel even bothers to include that useless pos.

I Wouldn't call it useless, my 2600k is idling at roughly 35-40c and never peaks above 55c with the stock cooler.

I guess I need to make sure it's mounted right then. It was 56C idling in BIOS.

Sapphire made one until recently, but they're pretty much all gone. If you're looking for one, try google shopping. I'm sure there's a few retailers that haven't sold them all yet.

Read the fine print in your Intel handbook. On paper, the warranty is only honored if you use the stock cooler. There's really no way to prove it, unless you have never used the cooler and the paste is still crisp. (me xD)

Well, that's bizarre. It seems like intel would prefer people using better heatsinks, since it'd make the chip last longer. I'm guessing that's there so they don't have to replace a $300 chip that someone fried by using a Pentium 2 cooler.


Ran some temp tests today. I'm getting ~30-34C idle, 55-58C in BIOS (?), ~68-70C when transcoding media with handbrake (~85% utilization), and I killed prime95 at 75C. It probably would've settled around 80 if I had left it.

Anyway, my mounting bracket shipped out today, and should arrive in a few days. Then I'll have my work cut out for me:



There's also a pile of about 20 blu rays that wouldn't fit on the shelf.
